On the 27th or 28th I went through all my clothes...AGAIN and got rid of anything that didn't fit right, dingy, faded, old or was too small, or too big and now I have a PLAN.
Now like all plans, they are subject to change :-)
One thing I realize that I NEED are some woven tops. Y'all KNOW I LOVEEEEE knits but I NEED some woven tops. I need that structure.
This list will be updated as I complete it and as the pattern company puts out the new spring/summer collections.
I have a LOT of patterns. SERIOUSLY. A lot of what I have is OOP and to me those are some of the best ones. CLASSIC is always in style.
M5323 Patrice made this one and it was just too cute, so I picked it up lol. I love the neckline on view B but love the short sleeves of A so I PLAN to combine those two. I want to do this in white. Finished January 17, 2009
I MUST mention that I am ADDICTED to white tops. SERIOUSLY. Once summer arrives, I LIVE in white. White pants, white skirt, white top. I LOVE IT.
Now that I've mentioned that lol, I am going to seriously have to NOT make all my woven tops in white lol.
M5470 I have loved this pattern since it came out in 2007 I think.....
I don't do a WHOLE lot of long sleeve tops....so of course I like view a and of course I want to do this in white, BUT I might go with the salmon rose from Patone Spring 09.
I've said it before and I'll say it again...I like to be aware of the trends, but I don't live by those rules :-)
M4922 This pattern didn't get a second glance until I saw Erica's version. Needless to say I really liked it. I actually can't wait to make this one and I will make view C.
S4112 I think everyone and their momma has made this top. I even started it once in this pretty pink, but at the time I didn't know how to do buttonholes so I didn't finish it. I'm almost positive I threw it away lol. I will make the short sleeve view.
S3838 I have made this one before but it wasn't as well made as I would have wanted it to be so I threw it away. See, I have NO problem getting rid of stuff that isn't well made. I've learned sewing is really trial and error. The mistakes I've made, I don't make twice lol. ANYWAY, I want to make view A and probably view E for the summer. I really love this top with a nice pair of fitted straight leg pants. You simply can't wear a top like this with a baggy/unfitted bottom. NERP lol.
S4077 This is another pattern that was brought to my attention by someone else. Mimi made this one and I LOVED it and had to get it lol. I plan on making view E.
V8196 I have been in love with this shirt for a LONG time. I don't know where I saw it first but I LOVE It. I plan on making view A. I have a swiss cotton dot (I don't know if that is the proper name) that will be perfect for it.
B4985 This is another one that has been on my list forever. I really love this top. I plan on making view B or C...I haven't decided yet.
NL 6755 I LOVE wrap dresses and shirts. I adore this pattern. I've had it a while and now I'm going to make it! LOL. I don't know if I am going to make view A or B. I might just make B with short sleeves lol.
Ok, there you have it. That is it for my woven tops that I PLAN to make. I need a lightweight jacket (because it's just not cold enough for a coat lol) for Spring and early summer so I will be looking for a versitle pattern for that.
This post got really long lol.
Hope you all have a great day!
